Art Deco Pewter Finished Sconces by Mid-West C. 1935 (ANT-952)

ANT-952  Art Deco Pewter Finished Sconces by Mid-West C. 1935

Mid-West was a top of the line manufacturer, who in their beginning, only cast quality lights even those that were exceedingly difficult.

So...here we have a pair of top-of-the-line sconces with their very nice art glass shades, Circa 1935 (in their catalog of 1936). Their gorgeous amber with ruby accented shades are simply neat.

During the depression, Mid-West added an aluminum line to compete with Lincoln Mnf who was selling to Sears. Sears customers, during the depression, would not normally come up to the pricing level of Bronze Materials, so Mid-West did their fine casting, also, in aluminum, but took the final finishing to extra quality measures. Mid-West survived the depression and was sold a few years ago to a large lighting conglomerate.(information courtesy of the Kelly Art Deco Lighting Museum)

The finish of these sconces is commenserate with their age with a few areas of rubbed finish but for their age, about 90% good. We showed the frames, by themselves, to show the ORIGINAL touches of polychrome color added for effect. Never touched..never “improved’. Original. They are antiques afterall. Frames, by themselves, are pictured for a true look at their condition.

We have re-wired these sconces to UL standards with new sockets in our UL shop. Each sconce has a rotary switch identical to those used in the 30s.

So, these are ready to hang with a standard light mounting kit which we will supply.

Measurements:  10" tall with a width of also 5 1/2". Protrudes a mere 4 3/4”.

These sconces can be lamped with either incandescent or LED bulbs .

Price:  $ 850.00 for the pair with their gorgeous glass shades plus shipping charges.
